Glass has a mind of its own once it begins to melt and the colour you pick when it is in rod form can disappear when heated only to reappear on a second heating or change into something very different depending on how much oxygen is in the flame you use and how much silver is in the glass.
Mixing colours can yield extraordinary results too, but more often than not ends up with an undesirable black in my experience. This is due to the chemicals in the glass that give it its colour reacting with each other.
Trial and error is often the best way to discover what a glass will do.
I keep my eyes open for new ways to be inspired to play with colour and recently found Design Seeds
I used this beautiful pallete to create the sets of beads below. Not really pink enough and a touch too yellow. In real life the colours are actually closer. But my lights bring out the yellows.
Thank you for reading my blog and for voting, cause I dont think I could choose between these two.
